Written by Brust Funeral Home on October 29th, 2018

AnnerinoDeacon Frank J. Annerino, 78, from Sacred Heart Parish in Lombard passed into eternal life on October 27 surrounded by the love of his family.

Beloved husband of 57 years of Marlene (Gerber) Annerino.  Devoted father of Juliet Annerino, Tina Montalvo, Frank Annerino, Laura Vandercar, and Maria Elena Goldstein.  Doting Grandfather of fourteen and Great-grandfather of two.  Loving brother of Marilyn (Annerino) Rini.

Being born on the south side of Chicago made him a die-hard Sox fan.  Loved by many for his quick wit and readiness with a joke. Frank was a pioneer at the dawn of the computer age, starting his career as one of the first computer programmers at Northern Trust Bank.  Later he boldly struck out on his own, founding a computer sales business with his lovely wife as his Girl Friday.  He then proved himself invaluable as a leader in data security at AON Insurance.

After a full career life, Frank was called to the diaconate where he ministered faithfully since ordination in 2009.  As a deacon, he welcomed, through the waters of Baptism, many a new life into God’s family, witnessed to the sacred bonds of matrimony for countless couples, and evangelized passionately through his work with RCIA. Being the spiritual director for the Legion of Mary and president of the Younger Than Ever Club brought him much joy.  A true patriot, his love of our great country was evidenced in his dedicated work with the John Birch Society and as a precinct committeeman.

The amount he will be missed can only be matched by the tremendous amount he was loved and loved others.  He now adores God in glory with the angels.

Visitation will be Friday, Nov. 2, 3-9 pm, Sacred Heart Church, 114 S. Elizabeth Street, Lombard.  Funeral Services will be Saturday with 9:15 AM Prayers at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main St., Lombard, going to 10 AM Mass at Sacred Heart, followed by interment at St. Michael’s Cemetery, Palatine.

    Frank, I am proud to call you my friend. May the angels welcome you to paradise where I know you will continue your good work for all of us. I still owe you dinner.
    We’ll talk about that when (if) I get to be with you in paradise.
    See you later my friend, Joe

    My wife Nancy and I found Deacon Frank to be as true to his calling as a deacon as anyone we had ever met. He truly embodied the origin of the word deacon as servant. He served God and His church cheerfully, faithfully, and without reservation. He was an inspiration to meet and a joy to work with. God reward you and please pray for us, Frank until we hopefully meet up with you again.
